    The bikes are loaded. :D Leaving tomorrow for a leisurely ride north, stopping somewhere close to Anamosa for the night, then the motorcycle museum Friday morning, then the rally.

    Well my bike is loaded too - - in a less great way, in the back of my truck. I need to clear some trees north of Spring Green so I will camp up there, DR around trails, and DR down to check out the Joy! Maybe stop and register on my way up to Spring Green tomorrow. Lack of water in Spring Green (not the town, where I'm camping) may have me camping at Joy on Sat or Sunday. I wasn't going to bring the Stelvio, but it now - as of yesterday - has a badly blown fork seal (could look worse than it is, haven't tried to fix it yet) so, karma or something. She's mad.

    The Mrs. and I have flipped a coin ( how all major decisions are made) and we're going to make the trip over tomorrow, and have proclaimed tonight our date night. Work and life have been in the way for months.

    See everyone tomorrow morning!!

    Hope everyone made it home safely!! Some of the slacker retirees are making road trips out of the way home.
    I'm getting dressed to go to work to support the old farts. It's a burden..:lol3

    Thanks to Nora for the car ride to Paper's cabin and thanks to Lisa & Dan for the loan of their car & trailer!

    I left the rally at 6:15 and was back in Minnesota by 9:00. Lots of work waiting for me when I got back. Big thanks to the Guzzi club for the fantastic good time and hospitality. They put on a very good rally and make everyone feel welcome!!!
